"Bought it in 2000 with 19k miles. I just popped the airbags in a winter driving accident. Totaled due to age. Did everything it was designed to do. Lots of space; more than my Yukon XL. Very reliable. Would happily have another one."

"Felt like after the 150k mark we needed to take it in for repairs ALL the time - literally dumped 500-600+ in to it every quarter year for a year...was always something major. Maybe that's just how it is with old cars, but we expected different. Loved the heated seats, loved the custom seat adjustment option...Just a really cozy truck with all the bells and whistles. Wish it would have just ran better over all."
